Working collaboratively to help business sustain the natural environment

The Natural Capital Impact Group is a global network of companies, working collaboratively, to determine how business can sustain the natural world and its resources through its strategies and operating practices.

The Group aims to influence its industry peers through the example of business practice, drawing on research-informed knowledge, processes and tools. Through its engagement with governments and the financial system, the Group seeks to create the economic conditions necessary for these practices to achieve scaleable action.

It demonstrates the operating practices, processes and management schemes that result in positive outcomes for both business and the environment.
